Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany

Watchword for the week — Jesus said, “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.” Luke 6:36

Sunday, February 24 — Genesis 45:3-11,15; Psalm 37:1-11,39-40
1 Corinthians 15:35-38,42-50; Luke 6:27-38

I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 89:1

From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. John 1:16

Forgiving God, you took sinners who were spiritually bankrupt and made them whole. By your mercy given through Christ, direct us in a way to exemplify mercy to those with whom we are in contact—today and always. This we pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
